    Did you test the hot side of the fuse with the ignition switch on?



    If so, I think first I would jump a wire from the battery to the hot side of the fuel pump fuse and see if the fuel pump runs -- this would confirm the problem is no power to the fuse block.



    Then I'd work back from the fuse block -- switch, relay, etc...

THE OIL PRESSURE SWITCH IS NEXT TO THE DISTRIBUTOR, JUMP THE PLUG AND SEE IF IT RUNS .. ASSUMING THE FUSE IS GOOD

I am looking at alldata , the schematics for the fuel system. I see a fuse in the fuse block(10 amp) that comes from the fuel pump relay to the pump. I see a fuseable link (link H)that goes through a oil pressure sending unit. I would get a test light and test the oil pressure sending unit, the inline fuseable link and the relay. If still no power check the connection at the pump and then work backwards testing the harness.

1985 corvette cranks but won't start, fuel pressure good, oil is good also, it doesn't seem to be geeting any fuel. New fuel pump, filter & gas. Is there a security aystem problem?


Check to see if you have spark, if you do, and still it does not start, then you may think that fuel is not getting to it. At this point, use some starting fluid and spray it at the throttle opening. That should start it for a few seconds and give you the answer.

Probably, also, if it's an electric, check to make sure the pump is actually getting power. The wires may have gone bad.

1985 corvette no power to fuel pump


There's probably a relay that may control the fuel pump and the rst of the fuel system. I'd go to the local auto parts store and purchase a service manual, i believe it's only about twenty dollars. Good luck.

1985 corvette wont start


NEVER use either!! EVER! It burns very dry and can destroy a gas engine! Just give it a bit of gas down the intake.But keep the can away after each try! Far away! Not sure how you are getting 32v?? That can't be volts! Silly question, but is there fuel in the tank?? Have seen this before! It would be great to learn how this all started?? [or should i say stopped] lol Check the fuel line for a pin hole. It sounds like it is sucking air. Really need a bit more info. OK Frankster016

poss. is fuel pressure reg. problem. put a guage on the test port and check press. should be above 35psi. see if it stays running when you spray choke cleaner in the pcv valve steadily while starting. if the engine stays running after a few seconds of running on choke cleaner then probably a bad fuel pump relay cause the oil pressure switch will keep the pump on without the relay when it has good oil pressure.
let me know if ya can do this or if it helps.
